  • "The house has the basics for a good stay, is clean and has what is needed."

    Location close to the lake is great. However it lacks comfort and facilities to make it a great stay. For example: shower flow is very soft and hose too short for tall people. One toilet (which we knew) is sometimes inconvenient when you are with 6 people. Kitchen equipment at minimum, etc

  • "We had a great stay, the property was very comfortable, spacious and very quiet."

    Loved the bird feeder outside the lounge window. Saw all kinds of birds. The beds were very comfy as was the lounge which makes for a pleasant stay. We walked along the road with our dogs to the Lakeside hotel and to get the cruise a couple of times. No pavement but it was fine and took only 5 minutes. Would recommend Nutwood.

  • "Nice property, furnishings general good."

    Decorating a bit tired but its comfortable and acceptable. Overall recommend, but for exception below. Big fault!; the shower is awful! Stand back to the wall underneath the shower spray (that's if you are not taller than 5'6 inches) then you get wet - just about. Needs a water pump and change of height of shower head. Otherwise, Lakeside a lovely area to stay; just a short walk to the ferry boats and the station for the train ride. Also the Aquarium if you want to visit that. Several Hotels nearby; the Lakeside and the Swan 4*Hotels, also the Newby Bridge. They all accept non residents, Lakeside Hotel the most expensive coffee I have yet been charged at £4.50 a cup. Found the Swan nice and reasonable for dinner.

  • "The listing says that there is a pub nearby; we went to the Lakeside Hotel one evening and was unable to have drinks due to not being guests of the hotel and when we tried the Swan, we were allowed to sit in the lounge but not where residents were dining etc."

    ..the description is misleading as to what is available.

    Thank you for your feedback. We were sorry & surprised to hear that you were unable to use the bar at the Lakeside Hotel as the bar has always been open to non residents. To check this out we visited the hotel & the receptionist explained the hotel had only just re-opened after the covid closure and had restricted the first week to residents only, from then on it has been open to the public. The Swan restaurant & the tables in the bar area are reserved for resident & non-resident diners. There are several lounge rooms to enjoy a drink as well as the beautiful outside seating area by the river. Less that 200mt from the Swan is the Newby Bridge Hotel which has a traditional pub/bar open to the public. We hope despite this you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    ! The only negative is the photographs don't do it justice. Will definitely be back. ❤️

  • "Not clean on arrival."

    Unique entry code is not unique Dodgy electrics with old fashioned fuse box - in the garage which has a hard to open door. Bring your own fuse wire and tools just in case (i.e. a light bulb trips it)

  • "The house wasn't cleaned when we arrived but this was soon put right,although it put a dampener to the start of the holiday after a 6 hour drive."

    The house was OK but the water pressure was a trickle and bits of the ceiling were peeling off the wall in the kitchen. We were under the impression that the house was next to the lake, which it was but there was no access.

  • "Pleasant house for our family and dogs and good nearby places of interest."

    Eg. Pleasure boats, steam train, aquarium, walks, cycling. The biggest problem was the very short walk to these places did not have a safe footpath so we had to walk in the road or drive to them.

  • "Good location and although close to the lakeside ferry, it was not a road you would want to walk children on."

    No pavement and walls either side, with very fast traffic. The cottage was perfect for a family with comfortable beds but I think it may have been courteous to let us know the access road was being completely dug up and replaced during the week of our stay. The workman were helpful in letting us get in and out but we did worry about damage to our car with raised drains and hardcore. I'm sure this will be complete for any future stay but was a little disappointed no one spoke to us about this.

  • "Spacious and comfortable cottage in a good and quiet location."

    Cottage is close to Lake Windermere, where the ferry and steam train are based.

  • "The cottage was perfect for us, we were a group consisting of active grandparents, a young couple with two small children and two dogs."

    The cottage is just as described, and is spacious, comfortable and in a lovely setting, with a wrap around garden. The rear section of the garden is enclosed, making it safe and secure for the children and the dogs, and there is a newly constructed little summer house in the front section of the garden - perfect for breakfast or morning coffee. There is sun in different parts of the garden all day, so always somewhere to sit out. There is also a lockable garage for storing bikes or other outdoor equipment. The location was excellent, turn right out of the close and you are only a 5 minute walk from the Lakeside Steamer, Haverthwaite Steam Railway, the aquarium and a hotel, turn left and it is only a 5 minute walk to a lovely wooded, hillside walk. There is no pavement, so care does need to be taken when walking to both, but we managed easily with children, a buggy, a cockapoo and a Labrador. Despite the proximity to Lake activities, the cottage and it’s garden were peaceful and quiet - with only the occasional toot from the steam train. This area of the Lakes is beautiful, and there are loads of places to hike and bike, and even at half term, the smaller roads and walking trails were quiet and tranquil. We found it a perfect getaway and highly recommend it. Wish we were still there!

  • "Nutwood is a lovely quiet, sunny bungalow."

    We could walk into the hills from the door, or round to Lakeside Quay for coffees by the lake or a boat trip. Lovely comfortable beds! Would definitely return.

The property

This charming bungalow is in a secluded setting at the end of a private close in Lakeside at the tip of Lake Windermere.

The accommodation is spacious & modern.

Private parking for 1 (possibly 2) cars.

Front entrance lobby leading to a spacious inner hall.

The living room is large and airy with leather sofas, wood burning stove and patio doors leading out to the furnished balcony.

From your family-sized dining kitchen, spread out into the furnished conservatory and lovely little patio garden.

3 good-sized bedrooms; 1 king size, 1 double and 1 twin.

House bathroom with shower over bath and separate WC.

Surrounded by walks and a network of peaceful lanes, Nutwood is also just a 10-minute stroll to Lakeside Pier for cruises to Windermere and Ambleside, The Lakes Aquarium, the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Steam Railway and the Lakeside Hotel for amazing food & drink.

Lakeside is renowned as a peaceful Lake District holiday destination, nestled around the southern tip of Lake Windermere and away from the hustle and bustle of the busier areas.

But despite this, you'll find a wealth of things to see and do within easy reach - whatever your holiday tastes. Windermere Lake Cruises depart from Lakeside Pier, and cruise the full length of Lake Windermere to Bowness and Ambleside - a wonderfully stress-free way to explore.

You'll find plenty of walking routes in the area; including Alfred Wainwright's Finsthwaite Heights route from Newby Bridge (adjacent to Lakeside) and up to High Dam for more lovely walks & perhaps a wild swim.

Lake District historic sites such as Holker Hall and Gardens, Cartmel Priory & village, Stott Park Bobbin Mill, Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall are all within easy reach by car, with no need to navigate through busy tourist areas. Further north, you’ll discover Esthwaite Water and the landscapes that famously inspired the children's author Beatrix Potter.

Her former home can be visited at Hill Top, in the small village of Near Sawrey, then onward and you'll reach Hawkshead village - a wonderful place to while away a day, exploring quaint cobbled streets and a blissfully car-free village centre.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Newby Bridge 1.2 miles; Bowness-on-Windermere 8.7 miles.

Set on the southern shores of Lake Windermere, the small, sleepy hamlet of Lakeside offers a peaceful getaway location, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the Lake District’s popular attractions, but still within easy reach of them. Whether you decide to discover the area in the car, by foot, bike, boat or steam, there’s plenty to see nearby to keep the whole family content. The ferry dock offers the chance to travel by boat to Waterhead or Bowness, or take a shorter trip to the National Trust’s Fell Foot Park, across the water, which offers pretty grounds set alongside the very tip of the lake, providing plenty of places for picnics, paddling, games and gentle strolls on sunny afternoons. Situated alongside the Lakeside Station is the long-standing Lakeside and Haverwaithe Railway, home to Britain’s oldest standard gauge steam engine, on which you can travel back in time along this well-loved Heritage line, and where little ones will delight in meeting Thomas and his friends. Visit the Lakes Aquarium to uncover the often-secretive world of life below water, where you’ll chance upon hundreds of captivating creatures that feature in the surrounding rivers, lakes and sea. There are wonderful, well-signed walks to be enjoyed in the immediate area, including the 5-mile route to Finsthwaite’s High Dam, which trails from Lakeside through pleasant woodlands and meadows. Lakeside offers an exclusive holiday location with all of the Lake District’s delights at your fingertips.
